Perovskite type oxide strontium titanate (SrTiO3) and strontium zirconate (SrZrO3) ceramic powder has been synthesized using conventional solid state reaction method. The powders were mixed and ground undergone calcinations at 1400°C for 12 h and sintered at 1550°C for 5h. X-ray Diffraction exposes physical properties SrTiO3 which exhibit cubic phase (space group: pm-3m) at room temperature meanwhile SrZrO3 has Orthorhombic phase (space group: pnma). The electrical properties such as dielectric constant (εr), dielectric loss (tan δ), and conductivity (σ) were studied in variation temperature and frequency. High dielectric constant of SrTiO3 and SrZrO3 were observed at 10 kHz for both samples about 240 and 21 respectively at room temperature. The dielectric loss of SrTiO3 and SrZrO3 is very low loss value approximately 0.00076 and 0.67512 indicates very good dielectric.
